Apple subsidiary Beats added two new color options to its recently released Beats Studio Buds+ noise-cancelling earbuds — cosmic pink and cosmic silver.

The new metallic finishes are part of a collaboration with press-on nails retailer Olive & June. They’ll become available September 7, the companies said.

Beats by Dre, which Apple bought in 2014, rolled out Beats Studio Buds+ in May, updating its popular Beats Studio Buds released in 2021.

Reviewers found a lot to praise in the plus model, from upgraded audio quality to longer battery life to a very cool transparent-finish option. In fact, virtually every aspect of the buds are improved over the original — Beats said 95% of the components are new and improved — making the $20 jump in price well worth it.

And they’re great for both Apple and Android users, in part because they include Google Fast Pair functionality and support Bluetooth 5.3.

“The Studio Buds + are arguably the best wireless earbuds that Beats has ever made,” Gear Patrol wrote. “If you get them in their new transparent finish, they’re also one of the coolest-looking wireless earbuds that I’ve ever tested.”

Beats Studio Buds+ initially came out in that transparent look, plus black/gold and ivory options. But soon you’ll be able to get cosmic pink and cosmic silver versions. With Beats earbuds, both the case and earbuds reflect the colors.

The new colors come through a collaboration with Olive & June that features influencer Emma Chamberlain (see the video below):

To celebrate self-expression through color, Beats and leading nail brand Olive & June have partnered to release dazzling new polish shades and press-on designs in never-before-seen finishes inspired by the hardware and sound experience of Beats Studio Buds +. The nail collection will be available at on Wednesday, September 6.

Additionally, Beats presents “The Beauty of Immersive Sound,” a new campaign that fuses technology, beauty and style featuring internet personality and businesswoman Emma Chamberlain. In the futuristic spot, the cosmic Studio Buds + collection is highlighted as Chamberlain transforms from an intergalactic being to her glamorous self, exuding beauty at both stages.
